that we're fighting today as in iraq, as in afghanistan. that in the end the resolution of that have of this will be a political matter and you say that's wrong. the first order of business and winning the war is to kill the enemy fighters. very forthright statement but one that does go against the grain and i'd ask you to look at afghanistan today and assess whether you think that approach of killing enemy fighters is going to lead us to something that's going to be called a military solution? >> yes i do, but i'm not saying the military solution is the only part of the solution that matters. there has to be that military solution. there has to be the imposition of the mind in the enemy that you're going to get killed if you go up against the americans. and i think that's what's happening in afghanistan now. there's something of this in the -- in iraq in the awakening of the sunnis to the west of the country, the idea that this was a tribal battle but the americans turned out to be the strongest tribe and that's something that's being defined by the others and, of course, that is in

places in afghanistan where there are stories and continuing reports that iranian munitions and arms are arriving there. >> you are right. it is an ongoing concern. i have to put it in perspective though, because this is nothing from the weaponry coming in from iran. because if you look at that coming in from pakistan is two times less than iran. that doesn't mean it is insignificant, and we have to look for the trends in the weaponry, because if it is escalating in a major way, we have to think about responses and those could include the full range none of which are satisfying, but we may have to put more forces in the west of afghanistan and devote more afghan capability to the western border which is one of the defensive things you can do and think of some offensive actions. >> indeed. now, we are guard to pakistan, isn't withholding $800 million potentially self-injurious, because we, america, is relying on the pakistan army to fight radical islamic terrorists in their own backyard without those fund, and doesn't that stymie our attempt to fight al qaeda? >> absolutely. this is a
of american troops in afghanistan this weekend. >> reporter: before leaving to iraq america's defense secretary headed to afghanistan to see for himself the situation there and speak to the troops. this is the area where most of the fighting has been taking place in recent years and where the majority of u.s. forces are. this is his first overseas trip since being appointed to his new role and afghanistan is a key responsibility for panetta. the defense secretary has been very upbeat about the prospects of defeating al-qaeda during this trip. he said if they can keep the military pressure up on them and also capture or kill less than 20 of the terror group's key leaders still operating in countries between here and afghanistan and north africa, then they will have an effect strategically -- in effect strategically defeated them. his assessment comes as afghanistan prepares for the gradual drawdown of u.s. troops due to begin this summer. 10,000 are due to leave this year and another 23,000 in 2012. the defense secretary also said he hoped to drive the taliban to peace talks during the

afghanistan. so i'd like to know a little more about why the secretary said this, and what he's basing it on. heather: peter, that's what i was wondering about when i heard this over the weekend, these messages are always crafted very carefully. why send this message now and i'm wondering to what extent it might have been a message to president karzai in afghanistan, hey, we're not going there be there -- going to be there forever, get your house in order or a message to the american public? >> i think it's talking to a lot of people. obviously people in the united states because the president has just decided to withdraw 33,000 troops over the next year from afghanistan. i think he's trying to wind down that war in afghanistan. that's what the president wants. i think you're right, there is also an international audience around the world, and they may also be able to tell al-qaeda or folks who might join al-qaeda that hey, it's not really worth joining up because the fact of the matter is we've got you on the run now. and i do agree with him that it's worthwhile, putting as much pressure on
to afghanistan. we were out of the taliban out of power. karzai stood for free elections in 2004. al qaeda was dismantled and settled in waziristan and pakistan. this is not a nation-building exercise. this encounter terror exercise. we do not need 100,000 troops on the ground at the cost we are paying today in order to get the job done. [applause] and i am here to tell you that the future of the u.s. is not going to be determined in the prairies of afghanistan. the future of the u.s., whether you want to recognize it or not, is going to be determined by how well prepared we are to compete in a highly competitive century, and that battle is going to be waged across the ocean. as you walk off of this building, i want you to remember why we are in this race. it is about the generation behind us and the condition they will find our nation in. the debt trajectory that we are on. and number two, the reality of launching a new industrial revolution, it is within our grasp. it has happened before in our nation's history. problem-solving people can do it again. we need leadership and a game plan.

cuts causing a major part of our long term debts and our deficits. two wars in iraq and afghanistan that if we were to draw down earlier for example, in afghanistan would deal with long-term debt issues. so let's put those things on the table. corporate loopholes, instead of just turning to the piggy bank of social security and medicare. >> what about medicaid? would you cut that? >> medicaid, i mean, the challenge we have from medicaid is we want to make sure that we don't shift, simply shift the burden on to our states, which really can't afford that right now. again, the conversations about these entitlement programs while i find might be, you know, important for us to engage in, we're conflating apples an oranges when it comes to, one, listing our debt ceiling and dealing with major causal factors for our long-term debt. >> i'm asking about all these possible cuts, which you've rejected, because the cost of government right now is up to about 25% of our economy right now. and the revenues are about at 16%. seems to me to get 0 to some quality, raise revenues to 2022 and bring do

against it from the beginning? >> yes. >> ok, let's go to afghanistan. >> afghanistan, i think it made sense after 9/11 to hunt down bin laden. he was clearly there, the taliban refused to cough him up. i think it made sense to invade. it does not make sense to be there now a decade later, or more, with not even a clear withdrawal plan. >> what's your take on marijuana? >> marijuana is -- should be legal and it -- it should be as legal and acceptable as booze. >> abortion laws. >> abortion laws, i'm in favor of a woman's right to choose and i think that whenever your take on abortion, and i'd say maybe 30 percent of libertarians are very, very anti-abortion, because they believe that the fetus, at least, at a certain point deserves the rights that everybody else has. government funding should not be involved in abortion but more to the point, we are at the very early stages of actually controlling our bodies, our biology, our reproduction. i think abortion is becoming less and less important to public discourse and will continue to, as we develop more control over how -- how and under
. but it's got to happen sooner than later. >> and mik, in afghanistan, what was the meeting -- what did you learn about the meeting between secretary panetta and president karzai? >> reporter: i think what came out of that was the fact that it was cordial. you know, the meetings that president karzai has had with other u.s. officials recently hasn't really been all that friendly. you know, president karzai has given long-winded speeches about civilian casualties and the like, with the u.s., including the former defense secretary, robert gates, sitting right next to him. but what came out of that meeting was a sense of cardialty that had been missing to some extent in that u.s./afghan relationship. panetta says he believes that things are on course for a successful conclusion to the u.s. military operations there in afghanistan, still set to end at the end of 2014. and by the way, you know, the u.s. has also decided to withhold $800 million in military aid to pakistan right next door, because there's been some tension, obviously, since the killing of bin laden. but what happened is that
in the beginning? >> ps. >> afghanistan made sense after 9/11. the taliban -- it makes sense to invade then. that way.t now appear >> what is your take on marijuana? what is to be legal. -- it should be legal. >> abortion laws? >> i am in favor of a woman's right to choose. right to choose. comments. anti-ga these are not involved in this. we are in control of our bodies. a portio abortion will continue. >> the department of education? >> they came on line in 79 or 80. they have had no clear up that an educational results. this is an arguable if you look at the national assessment of progress. seniors living high school have the same scores they had in the early '70s. that sinn make everybody think about giving up and going home and starting a school. >> federal money for politicians to run? >> it is quite possibly more disturbing to me than federal money for churches. money for churches. the american experiment to a complete failure appeared >> social security? >> i think social security is a plan that has run its course. i would be in favor. i think there is a tax on the social safety net
behind, the war in iraq, some said don't try to build a nation in afghanistan. stop spending all this money. when the democrats came in in 2009, they increased every department 10%. if it's 25% the feds are taking and the 12 to 15 the state and local are taking. that's why they are all cutting back. >> pat, pat, pat -- >> you will drive this economy deeper into recession if you put $1 trillion in taxes on it. >> pat, i don't disagree with cutting spending. i'm trying to tell you 70% of how we got into this problem was spending and 30% was cutting spending that we wouldn't afford. it happens to be 70% spending reductions. 30% tax increase. >> this is one place i agree with krugman. mike barnicle should be in this. jobs are the thing. we have to create jobs. how does hammering business with $1 trillion in tax increases when government is going down in size, they created the only jobs. john heilemann. >> just as point of fact -- was about letting part of the bush tax cuts expire after 2012. that's where the revenue is going to come. no tax increase in 2011 or 2012. it was raising ta
of dollars. >> this is not just -- this is immensely more violence than the ongoing combat in afghanistan. and mexico matters. it's the most important country along with canada on the face of the earth. >> mexican president felipe calderon declared war on drug gangs in 2006. since then about 40,000 people have been killed in the crossfire. >>> now to the death of the iraq war amputee on a six flag roller coaster. tonight experts say both the operator of the roller coaster and the disabled veteran were likely at fault. 29-year-old army sergeant james hackmer was thrown from a 200-foot ride at a six flags park near buffalo. he lost both his legs in the iraq war. both the rider and the operator are responsible for deciding who gets on board. the accident has renewed efforts to get amusement parks under federal regulation. six flags says the ride had no mechanical issues. >>> well, a piece of space junk could become a problem for nasa and the crew of the shuttle "atlantis." scientists are monitoring its location. they estimate it could come dangerously close to the shuttle tuesday during a pl

there, as little afghanistan's. so a year ago al-shabaab conducted the first attacks, actually outside of somalia. they killed 76 people, including one american in uganda. so there's a growing concern that al-shabaab leaders are striving to strike targets, not just beyond somalia now, but beyond africa. a european plot was recently uncovered. it was in the works and it was uncovered. so links between al-shabaab and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, the most active of all of the al qaeda franchises, are becoming clearer and clearer to us in the united states. they are communicating more about operations. they are working together on training. they are working together on tactics. the bomb making capability that al qaeda has, the expertise that they have there is being combined with al-shabaab's recruits. and these recruits frequently have western passports. many of them have u.s. passports. this is quite a deadly combination. and that's why last month, then cia director panetta called al-shabaab's threat to the u.s. homeland in his words significant and on the rise. u.s. forces have be
infrastructure in afghanistan. the notion that the $90 million more that we need for the cftc because of the deficit is nonsense. they want to turn the sec into a profit center. you have a catch-22. first denied the sec and the cftc adequate funding. they in turn will not be able to deal with the rulemaking requirements that they have. because they have not been able to move as quickly on the rolls, the rules have to be abolished. that is something they have imposed. you want the sec and the cftc to have smart people and good information technology. this does not come from the financial institutions. got the rules,, you m will run.e the other problem we have is i have been disappointed in the appointments from the obama administration. we knew last august that the comptroller of the currency had to be appointed but they only now come up with tom curry. the failure of pointing -- appointing someone to the cftb. a bank manager was brutally rejected. he was a disrespectful person by the republicans and now they will confirm nobody to the cftb. the purpose was to give them independence an
